Training Level

200+Hour Ready-to-Lead Training, 2017, 200

 

completed my first two Teacher Trainings with Jimmy Barkan based in Ft Lauderdale, Florida and have been teaching yoga for a little over 12 years. 10 years ago my husband Darragh and I moved from Florida to Cape Town, South Africa where we have been living ever since. We now have two amazing boys, Joshua (8) and Luca (5), and two dogs Jody and Lola.

I first came across Tara Stiles and Strala Yoga through social media and Youtube and have always been drawn to Tara’s easy going and natural approach to everything she does. Whether she is guiding 2000 people at a public event, doing a Youtube video or as I just experienced personally, guiding 60 Strala Teacher Trainees, what you see is what you get. She is who she is 100% of the time. This inspires me and I believe her and Mike are changing the world with their trainings one “shimmy” at a time.

So Strala is a way of life for me know. I’ve just completed the 200hr Teacher Training in Amsterdam and am a changed person. Being at ease with yourself allows you to be at ease with the world around you. Strala is not just about what happens on the mat. It seeps into all you do and how your live your life.

I am now guiding Strala classes in Cape Town at a studio called Yoga Body Space. If you happen to be in town, please pop in. Would love to see you.

Stay soft.
